Issue: August 17, 2017

Dear Folks,

Reno lost a provocative community figure on August 7, and in our cover story this week we tell Jake Highton's story as a journalism professor at UNR and a writer-activist in life.

Elsewhere in this week's edition, we look at UNR student Peter Cvjetanovic's participation in events in Charlottesville and its aftermath. Jeri Chadwell-Singley interviews a Hot August Nights car owner in our 15 Minutes feature, Bob Grimm reviews the latest Conjuring movie, and Matt Bieker reports on the first LGBTQ Pride Event at Reno Aces ballpark.

Remember that there are features available to read only in the print edition, so pick one up.

Thank you for reading us.
